The Supreme Confederacy of The Blazing Aura is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Emperor Thorne I with an iron fist, and notable for its parental licensing program, ritual sacrifices, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 18.359 billion Aurians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The enormous, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Wightvian. The average income tax rate is 94.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The enormous but inefficient Auran economy, worth a remarkable 1,414 trillion Thingymajigs a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining and Information Technology. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 77,038 Thingymajigs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Industry tycoons rarely hide their misdeeds due to the government's habit of bailing them out, battlefield gains are quickly lost when enemies don't respect a time-out, camera crews have accompanied conscripted dancers to film 'Marching On Ice', and jury selection begins with explaining what a jury is. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Blazing Aura's national animal is the Eagleas, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is The Aura.

The Blazing Aura is ranked 163,132nd in the world and 1st in Hall of the Mountain Womble for Safest, scoring 37.65 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
